OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.749 billion Leckenbyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Leckenby to be bombproof, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 118,533rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
